As I created another local account when recovering from a failed Microsoft account setup, I cannot supply the original Administrative account password [unknown] to make changes to the new Parallels 10/WIN 8.1 account. The User Account dialog is requesting an Administrator Password. None of the current/past passwords work - I believe this was a password corruption issue.
The new account was created using http://kb.parallels.com/en/114193
as a guide.
My goal is to delete the original account and rename the new account and change the password.
With the new account, I am able to use the services/Apps of Windows 8.1 than I need. What I cannot do is make changes to any account without a password to the original account.
